The 16-hour flight from Chicago to Hong Kong, United Airlines flight 895, was prevented from making it to its final destination once the madness started.

More specifically, officials said the man had dirtied "a couple" of lavatories on the plane and had also tried to cram his shirt down a toilet, reported The Washington Post.

Passengers on a United Airlines flight had to be diverted to Anchorage after a man smeared his excrement around the plane.

Airport Operations says the Boeing 777 was grounded overnight for maintenance, leaving passengers stranded in Anchorage.

One passenger, Tricia Mason, told KTVA that the man was "shaking the seats all around him". The flyer was reportedly cooperative with the flight crew and remained seated after his bathroom escapades were stopped.

The passenger was reportedly cooperative when he was met by airport authorities and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in Anchorage.

The plane made its emergency landing in Anchorage just before 6:30 p.m. local time, according to data from FlightAware, a live flight tracking website.

The disruptive passenger was taken to Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage for a psychological evaluation but was not charged for leaving his crap behind.

The identity of the man who caused the disturbance has not been released, KTUU reports, but he cooperated with airport police and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who questioned him after the plane landed in Anchorage.
